Police in suburban Detroit say a 3-year-old girl has died after being struck during recess by a table that folded into a gymnasium wall at a Head Start school.

Other children were in the gymnasium at St. Albert the Great Parish.

Police say the incident "is being investigated as a tragic accident, related to equipment located at the facility."

The child's name was not immediately released and it wasn't immediately clear who operates the Head Start school.
